COLUMBIA, Mo. - Mizzou's Statewide Outreach program continued on Thursday, August 9, 2012, as the trio of Mike Alden, Assistant Director of Development Nico Yantko, and Director of Game Operations Derek Doolittle made several stops on their way to the Bates County Alumni Picnic in Adrian, Mo.
The day began as the group left Mizzou Arena and headed westward to Boonville, Mo., in Cooper County for the first stop of the day at UMB Bank. The lobby was full of Tiger spirit as a gathering of fans greeted the group.
Next up was a stop in Pettis County. Ken Weymuth of W-K Chevrolet and Buick welcomed the Mizzou staffers into his dealership. Weymuth is a proud member of the Big Wheels program - supplying a courtesy car for an athletics staff member. Just down the road from W-K, the group paid visit to Central Bank of Missouri. A board room full of anxious Tiger supporters listened carefully as Alden gave one of his many updates from Tiger Nation for the day.
A visit to the Johnson County MU Extension office was in order as the group traveled in to Warrensburg, Mo. Program Director Georgia Stuart-Simmons and a roomful of Extension staff and community members greeted the group and provided an update on the Johnson County office. Members of the Extension staff were also excited to try on the new helmets and jerseys that will be donned by Tiger football team in just a few short weeks.
KDKD 104.9 The Eagle was the next destination, as the group entered into Henry County. On-air personality David Lee asked Alden questions regarding the SEC transition, as well as the state of Tiger Nation in general.
Bates County was the final stop of the day, as Alden and Co. were guests to the Bates County Alumni Picnic. A hall full of 150 anxious Tiger fans enjoyed a delicious dinner courtesy of Ritchie Davis and Butt Head BBQ, and listened intently as Alden spoke with the group about the exciting year to come for Tiger Athletics.
